Google will not build a new browser

There has for a long time been a rumor on the Net, regarding Google building its own browser.
Google chief executive Eric Schmidt now says. “It looks like people have some good browser choices already,” Schmidt argues. “We would not build a browser for the fun of building a browser.”

Google already does a lot to get people switch from the Internet Explorer. It has partnerships with Norway’s Opera browser and Apple’s Safari and it has developed a toolbar for the Firefox community. And Firefox has, as many knows, become a real threat to the Explorer.

However, this does not mean that Google is not worried about the Microsoft Internet Explorer hegemony. Schmidt repeats Google’s worry that the Explorer in the next version of Windows — Vista — will steer users to Microsoft’s own search engine.
